Über dieses Lied
It Really Matters

Up and down this rocky mountain
up and down again
careful you can hurt your feet
you can trip and die
you should take along provisions
you may need a map
don’t forget some entertainment
who can do without? 
a torch to make it through the night
a pen to write a note
and they will read your obituary
yes I’m sure they will

Hey! It really matters what you do 
and even what you say
It really matters if you leave 
or if you gonna stay
it really matters if you keep on 
doing things your way
it really matters if you say okay
or if you just don’t care


Feels like I’ve been here before
feels like déja vue
feels like going round in circles
feels like we’re stuck in here
Someone said we got to hurry
some say it’s too late
so what’s the point in getting over
all this disarray

Hey! It really matters what you do 
and even what you say
It really matters if you leave 
or if you gonna stay
it really matters if you keep on 
doing things your way
it really matters if you say okay
or if you just don’t care

Dieses Lied hatte ursprünglich einen schweizerdeutschen Text. Durch die English lyrics hat es einen anderen Charakter erhalten. Mir gefällt der Gegensatz zwischen dem etwas diabolisch angehauchten Flüsterer und der Aussage im Chorus, dass es wirklich darauf ankommt, was sagst, was du tust, ob du gehst oder bleibst.
